A letter written by a local Haddenham resident has been published by The Daily Telegraph newspaper, Saturday 1st October 2016:
SIR — Allister Heath's call (Comment, September 29) for bigger villages and the sacrifice of some Green Belt to meet Britain's housing crisis would destroy some of the lovelier parts of our country.
In Haddenham, famous for the pond in Midsomer Murders, there are proposals for more than 6,000 houses on prime agricultural land. These fields are also our protective Green Belt. Villagers have shown opposition in writing and in packed halls.
Britain must decide if it wishes to house those born here or those who come to work but who will be unable to support themselves in old age, requiring state assistance for health and housing.
